I love Minis and this one was super clean. It is fun to drive and very comfortable for its’ size. There really is no comparison to the Mini, it has a BMW motor.

Overall:

I just bought my first MINI, a 2012 base model with 76000 miles in pepper white. This car was very well kept for its age and I had seen many that werent. It has many things you wouldnt expect for the price point, like ambient lighting, basic technology like bluetooth, radio, and aux. There are some things that are a bit of a learning curve like the switches for the window located in the middle and uniquely layed out controls, but all of this is expected with a non American car and in my opinion makes it special. One thing I heard a lot was that sound system without the updated Harman kardon was muddy and awful. I dont think this is true. Its pretty decent in my opinion and I had bose in my last car, just dont expect it to blow your socks off. The base model without turbo doesnt have a ton of power, which is a given, but with the car being light it is pretty peppy. The sport mode also makes a big difference and allows smooth transition. It also takes tight turns and winding roads like a champ. The turn radius on the thing is awesome. If youre looking for a fun car with decent mpg and nice looks this is the one.

The car looked good, but had a number of service lights on and the suspension rattled on all 4 corners. It was going to require a lot of work to make it right.

I love the car! Features are awesome! Very good value. I wish the car had automatic seat adjustments. But that’s probably too heavy for the vehicle. Read More

We bought a 2017 Mini Cooper S. We needed to find a smaller light weight coupe to pull behind a class B RV. Price, size, power, equipment of the S model is we think? A good fit! Read More
